Where are scan logs saved when scans ran from management console?

Recommended Posts

Hi Malwarebytes Colleagues, 

Hopefully this is a simple question. Lets say you run a full scan on a computer from the Malwarebytes Management Console. Where are the scan-result text file logs saved after the scan is completed? 

I've always known that if you log into a computer and run Malwarebytes Anti-malware scans by selecting Start Scanner from the system tray icon then the scan-results log file will save to: C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs

But that doesn't seem to be the place where scan-results save when you initiate scans from the console.

While I don't have a definite answer, I would speculate that it is likely stored in a data location used for all users since it is technically being executed by a system level service, so it is probably somewhere under C:\ProgramData or a similar location.

I hope this helps, otherwise I'm sure a member of the staff will be able to provide a definitive answer.
